The holiday season is upon us! As you begin your holiday shopping, we want to make sure you know about a few awesome gifts that help support Kiva.

Give your friends and family a small gift that makes a big difference – the chance to make a microloan! New this year, our email and print-it-yourself Kiva Cards now feature beautiful images of Kiva borrowers whose lives have been changed with the help of Kiva loans.

Make sure to place your order by Thursday, Dec 12th to receive your postal-delivery card by Christmas!

For the reader in your life, pair a Kiva Card with The International Bank of Bob – the inspiring story of meeting people who've been helped through microloans.

These beautiful candles create opportunities for women to flourish and earn a living wage – with 10% coming back to support Kiva!

Make a loan in someone else's name. Choose "Dedicate this loan" at checkout and we'll send your loved one an email letting them know.

Kiva and Novica have partnered to provide loans to artisans around the world. Shop to find jewelry, gifts and more from artisans who've received a Kiva loan.

Show off your Kiva pride with gear available at Or pick up a t-shirt and wear your support around town.
